    A design for cleaning the oral cavity of COVID-19 ICU patients

    Good oral care of patients in ICU is correlated to better survivorship and reduced VAP (Ventilatory Associated Pneumonia).


    There are many disposable products available in the market, if you have access to that, use them, but if your hospital/country does not have these supplies, here is the one you can try making it



    This is an open-source design, and anyone can use it during this pandemic and modify it as necessary. It only requires two things:

    1. 3D printed part

    2. Cotton gauze


    Get in touch with me to get the .stl file for free download


    Hey Dhaval, have you considered sharing your solution in this challenge as well? Munich Re and Fraunhofer are providing 1 Mio € for realization and prices.
    Thanks for driving this important project!
